Design, interact and explore - It's Physics like never before! Algodoo is a 2D-simulation environment for creating interactive scenes in a playful manner, making use of the physics that we use to explain our real world. Algodoo is designed to encourage young people's own creativity, ability and motivation to construct knowledge. The synergy of science and art makes Algodoo as educational as it is entertaining.

Algodoo applies a constructionistic learning paradigm - learning by designing, constructing and exploring physical systems.

Algodoo is a new way of learning physics. With simple functionality you can draw and interact with physical systems on your computer.

Build and explore with rigid bodies, fluids, chains, gears, gravity, friction, springs, hinges, etc. Interact by click and drag, tilt and shake. Use color traces, graphs, forces, etc. for enhanced visualization.

Main features:

- FUNCTIONALITY - Create and edit using simple drawing tools. Interact by click and drag, tilt and shake. Use color traces, graphs, forces, etc. for enhanced visualization.
- PHYSICAL ELEMENTS - Build and explore with rigid bodies, fluids, chains, gears, gravity, friction, restitution, springs, hinges, motors, light rays, optics, lenses.
- USER COMMUNITY - Algodoo has a large and active community, engaging educators, parents and kids. This website enables collaborative authoring of lessons and lecture material. Algodoo also comes with lesson plans for different key stages in education.
- METHODS - Algodoo is based on the latest technologies, from Algoryx Simultion AB, for interactive multiphysics simulation, including variational mechanical integrators and high performance numerical methods.

A truly impressive and unique 2D-simulation software that allows creating interactive scenes in a playful, cartoony manner.
